3 website ideas that go beyond business

There are so many great ideas out there for building a website. More and more businesses are coming online and joining social media and more and more people are turning to the web for answers and entertainment. But what else can a website be used for?

Nina Mufleh made a website to apply to her dream job and got it! She used the power of a website to shine a spotlight on her knowledge, passion and dedication to her career goals. You can read the entire inspirational article here.

So, how else can a website contribute to your life in a meaningful way? How about keeping in touch, creating a family photo album/scrapbook that each member can update, or creating an interactive school presentation?

So many families are spread out around the world these days. It is often hard to keep up on everyone’s news. With a family scrapbook site, everyone could update their own page with news and photos for the whole family to see. It is a great fast and easy way to stay up-to-date with all members of your family, no matter where in the world they are.

To make matters even easier, Yola offers password protection for any page of your website. This will help ensure that your family updates will remain private, as it will only be accessible to those whom you grant access.

Another great example of a group of people who could benefit from an online presence are teachers.

More and more schools are gravitating toward computer-based learning. Making a classroom website where all lesson plans can be reviewed online by the students will allow for more interaction in the classroom as students are able to refer back to lesson plans online.

Additionally, in a world where being tech-savvy is becoming a necessity, integrating computer use in the schools can give students a leg up in their future careers. Students can try creating a website for their school project rather than a powerpoint presentation. In classrooms where everyone has a computer, their fellow students can interact with the presentation while following along.
